Zoso – The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience formed in 1995 to perform the most accurate and captivating Led Zeppelin live show since the real thing. For Zoso, it’s much more than just being a tribute. It’s about touching a golden era in music. Zoso embodies Page, Plant, Bonham and Jones in their spirit, tightly­ wound talent and authenticity.

Each band member has been carefully selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of their Led Zeppelin counterparts. In eighteen successful years of touring, they have perfected their art. As one of the longest tenured Zeppelin tributes, Zoso’s 2400 live shows around the world, including a slot at Bonnaroo in 2003, have established them as the most traveled and successful band in the market.

Brimming with imagination, energy, and genre-smashing scope, Fitz & The Tantrums defied the odds to become an indisputable phenomenon, a chart-topping, show-stopping modern pop combo unlike any other. Now, with their spectacular Elektra Records debut, More Than Just A Dream, the Los Angeles-based sextet have ramped up the timeless songcraft and soul sonic force that made them a worldwide sensation to fashion a kaleidoscopic milestone that delivers on the promise of their 2010 breakthrough, Pickin’ Up The Pieces. Songs like the impossibly catchy first single, “Out Of My League” are positively brazen with verve and vivacity, demonstrating all the drama and passion of the band’s famed live shows. From the charged back-and-forth between co-lead vocalists Fitz and Noelle Scaggs to the incontrovertible power of The Tantrums in full flight, More Than Just A Dream is the sound of a great band taking it right to the edge.

Remember the Eighties? Sure, we all do…but the Legwarmers don’t just remember the Eighties – they relive them. It all started back in May 2001 when Gordon Gartrell and Cru Jones had just seen yet another cover band butcher the decade that they loved, so they decided to do something about it. They assembled a group and vowed to give the world’s most hedonistic decade the tribute it deserved. Joined by Chet Reno, Lavaar Huxtable, Cyndi Sindee, Capt. Morgan Pondo and Clarence McFly, they locked themselves in the basement with a shoebox-full of dusty 45’s and an endless supply of Tab. One year later, the Legwarmers emerged.

“I’ve come full circle and I’m comfortable being a total outsider,” says Gogol Bordello’s Eugene Hutz, explaining the philosophy behind the band’s new album, Pura Vida Conspiracy. Like everything they’ve ever done, this outing is an uncategorizable blend of international influences, anchored by the gypsy rhythms Hutz grew up with in Ukraine. “Most people are looking for a box to put stuff in,” he says. “I try to avoid it. The message of this record is the quest for self-knowledge beyond borders and nationalities. Every culture is a useful mask, but it is just a mask. To get to know your actual human self, you have to get behind all the masks. With all the time I’ve spent in Latin America, living and loving, I realized I’ll never be Argentinean or Brazilian, just like I’ll never be Ukrainian. If you have true human spirit, you can’t fit into any genre, nationality or culture. To be a true citizen of the world, you can only be an ultimate outsider.”


WHAT: The Milk Carton Kids – General Admission Seated Show
WHERE: The Jefferson Theater
WHEN: Saturday, July 19, 2014 – Doors 7:00 PM, Show 8:00 PM
TICKET PRICE: $18 Advance / $20 Day Of Show
ON SALE: On Sale Now

Grammy-nominated flat-picking harmony duo The Milk Carton Kids have emerged in the last three years as a powerful voice defining the continuing folk tradition. A refreshing alternative to the foot-stomping grandeur of the so-called “folk revival,” an understated virtuosity defines The Milk Carton Kids to the delight of traditionalists and newcomers to the folk movement alike.  Many continue to refer the importance of The Milk Carton Kids among a group of new folk bands expanding and contradicting the rich tradition that precedes them.weeather


WHERE: The Southern Café & Music Hall
WHEN: Friday, March 28, 2014 – Dinner Service 5:00 PM, Show 9:00 PM
TICKET PRICE: $5 Student / $8 General Admission
ON SALE: Friday, March 21 at 10 AM

METZ play like one brutally heavy instrument with three heads, slashing heavy-gauge strings, bending guitar and bass necks in weird unison, along with what is probably the loudest drumming you’ve ever heard. It’s a return to everything that’s good about loud, ecstatic live music; a frantic nod to Nation of Ulysses, Shellac, The Pixies, The Jesus Lizard, and Public Image Ltd. at their most vicious, while still carving out some heavy new business. They play the instruments, the amps, and the room.


WHAT: We Are Star Children with The Extraordinaires
WHERE: The Southern Café & Music Hall
WHEN: Saturday, May 3, 2014 – Dinner Service 5:00 PM, Show 9:00 PM
TICKET PRICE: $8 Advance / $10 Day Of Show
ON SALE: Friday, March 21 at 10 AM

We Are Star Children is a 6-piece “adventure pop” band from Charlottesville, VA. They veer in and out of conventional rock/pop arrangement: horn and synth cascade over a surging rhythm section, brazen enough to share lead with the advancing wall of rich harmony vocals. In their recordings and live shows alike, they continually dance with beauty and mayhem, occasionally spinning into a contemplative waltz or tip-toeing down an eerie alley, but ultimately whipping the crowd into a full froth. They frequent debaucherous fundraisers, host homegrown shows in bookstores, and bring down the house whenever they appear on stage.


WHAT: Jeremy Messersmith
WHERE: The Southern Café & Music Hall
WHEN: Thursday, June 12, 2014 – Dinner Service 5:00 PM, Show 8:00 PM
TICKET PRICE: $10 Advance / $12 Day Of Show
ON SALE: Friday, March 21 at 10 AM

On “Heart Murmurs,” Jeremy Messersmith can break your heart one minute, and then put those fragile pieces back together again the next. The Minneapolis singer/songwriter candidly chronicles the ups and downs of modern relationships, all within the simple but striking constructs of his indelible, poignant pop songs. On his assured and expansive forth full-length album, Messersmith moves past the existential, death-laden themes of his 2010 breakthrough, “The Reluctant Graveyard,” to focus instead on the broad topic of love and the eternal affairs of the heart. And this polished, impassioned new batch of songs represent another confident artistic step forward in Jeremy’s flourishing career.
